Help stuff the JFS pantry at Annual High Holidays Food Drive in York, PA. Members of the Temple Beth Israel, Ohev Sholom Congregation and Hanover Hebrew Congregation work collaboratively to support the Project Manna Food Pantry, operated by Jewish Family Services of York, PA. During the Jewish High Holidays of Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur, individuals and families are encouraged to participate in the High Holidays Food drive by bringing non-perishables to the following locations.
On May 7th, the 16th annual Hustle 4 Hunger York Fun Run & Walkathon will be held at Springettsbury Park. We are looking forward to seeing you there! Register here.
The event will benefit the food pantries of the Project Manna program at JFS and the Northeast Neighborhood Association food bank.
We will dedicate our first lap in memory of Chrystal Sexton-McEachin, a local community leader and director of the Northeast Neighborhood Association for over 20 years. She was a matriarch of the York community, and her impact was felt in her neighborhood and throughout the city of York. Sexton-McEachin’s vision led to the unique partnership between JFS and the Northeast Neighborhood Food Bank. We will miss her energy and friendship.
All are invited to register/donate to the Hustle 4 Hunger York Fun Run and Walkathon on May 7th at Springettsbury Park. The event will be held rain or shine. For more information, and to register online visit www.Hustle4HungerYork or by calling 717.843.5011.
